MOUNT HAWTHORN HOMES
Bold, striking and contemporary design principles
drove the creation of these Daniel Cassettai Design
homes. The design firm, which has won awards at
state and national levels, used its expertise and
flair to meet the clients’ requirements.
The clients requested that the homes,
which address two street frontages, be
unique in appearance. One property combines
materials and adds texture, while the other
stands in complete contrast as a modern,
white minimalist-inspired home. The homes
are linked by a common element, namely, a
cantilevered fully glazed stairwell bordered by
a stark white masonry frame.
The bold elevations feature an abundance of
glazing, which captures views and light, while
the clever use of blade walls keeps the homes
well sheltered from the western side. The formal
entries and void areas to the south also allow
maximum light into the homes and stairwells.
Each home has a ground-floor kitchen, living
and dining area that addresses northern and
southern courtyards and a ground-floor media
room that doubles as a study or a guest room.
Additional living and/or study areas on the
first floor of each link the master and secondary
bedroom areas, and provide versatility to cater
for changes in any growing family’s requirements.
The seamless style of these homes allows light
to flow freely, while flexibility of the design gives
each individual family freedom to meet their own
“THE SEAMLESS STYLE OF THESE HOMES ALLOWS LIGHT TO FLOW
FREELY, WHILE THE FLEXIBILITY OF THE DESIGN GIVES EACH INDIVIDUAL
FAMILY FREEDOM TO MEET THEIR OWN LIFESTYLE DEMANDS”
